I was wondering if Las Vegas had a downtown business type area like any other city.I never see skyscrapers such as banks and corporate offices.

Business wise Vegas is diffuse. The area called "downtown" is in fact the Casino area of the City of Las Vegas.

Commerce is widely spread. There are concentrations in Henderson, Summerlin, south of the Airport, East of the strip and elsewhere. But that gives you the idea.

There are a few high rise commercial but mostly mid rise or low. Tall generally means hotel or other form of residences. Land values are not actually very high so commercial generally sprawls. The strip and close areas are very valuable and high rise predominates.

The concept of city center doesn't work at all in Vegas! It's very different. The businesses are all spread out and the casino areas are the closest thing to a city center we have. RE there is very expensive/non existent and the only businesses that can afford it are casinos.

Our downtown isn't really downtown but separated into different areas. Most businesses have locations on corridors. The busiest being midtown/Maryland Parkway and east of that area. Then there's the Stephanie/Sunset corridor, the Nellis/Charleston corridor, the Boulder Hwy corridor, the Eastern/St. Rose Corridor, Charleston and 215, Sahara and Decatur, Trop and 215, and Centennial Center.
